LINK: Danja Talks T.I. & Clipse With Rhapsody

In a new interview with Rhapsody, Timbaland protégé Danja speaks on everything from working with Britney Spears and Madonna to his top 5 producers in the game. But in terms of hip-hop, he talks about his upcoming work on Clipse’s Columbia debut, as well as T.I.’s Paper Trail, the record he’s recording while on house arrest. Check out an excerpt below:

Have you been working on T.I.’s upcoming album, Paper Trail?
I did. I sent him a few tracks. He wrote to one. From what I hear, it’s incredible. I’m not allowed to go in his crib. But I’ll be in the studio completely focused on T.I., sending him tracks and we’ll be communicating. I hate emailing beats. It’s the worst thing you could do, because it’s a magic that has to happen in the studio. I can see and feel when you don’t like something. When I worked with Tip on the last album, I ended up with three [songs]. But it’s another six records that he started, where he at least got a verse and a hook on, that we were just doing so fast — just from being in the studio [together]. So I’m gonna try to recreate that magic even though there’s going to be a distance. The difference is he’s writing everything now. The last [album] he just went in the booth. So now he’s thinking about what he’s saying. It’s gonna take a little bit longer. But the quality of the work is gonna be phenomenal.

What’s going on with the Clipse?
We haven’t got in. I really want to get in them just for the sake of Virginia. Pusha, pound-for-pound, a lot of people ain’t touching him with the spitting. I wanna do at least six or seven joints and make that album a classic like a Dre with a Snoop, or Primo with Big and Nas. There hasn’t been any more conversations [recently], but we gonna make that happen for sure.

    Danja’s production has the ability to outshine Toomp’s and Kao’s if he becomes T.I.’s official right hand man. All he needs to do is go over to Cliff’s Crib and kick it.
    Them beats be ridin like a fuck.

    Danja is skilled he aint just here cause of Tim,im sure tim helped him alot, and actually he sounds like tim alot,but he got some hot stuff

  • prakash

    if ti was freestyling those songs in that format maad props. there is no-one that can make “classic” songs/anthems other than jay z. ti, is a great songwriter. mad people can freestlye in the booth but to put together a song is nice.

    i think that danja is good with the beats.

    i make beats, too. hopefully one of these days i can work with him and timbo.

    they got craz skills and i have been a HUGE fan tim’s since they was in the devante’s tha bassment.

    the only thing about him that i disagree with, is the fact that he said pusha, without even mentioning malice.

    malice is WAAAAAY nicer than pusha. in fact, pusha (though he is nice as a rapper) ain’t THAT lyrical to me. no hate.

    i think my guy danja got the two mixed up and just didn’t realize who he was talkin about.

    i forgive you danja.

    stay up, big bruh!!!
